Song of Freedom


Published 1936


Although no-one could call this a great movie, it is of compelling historical interest. At a time when Black people in the movies were servants or scoundrels, Paul Robeson portrayed a London dock-worker who is discovered by an impresario and launches a great singing career; after that, he goes to Africa to bring education and enlightenment to the tribespeople.

Subject: PR for Robeson
Though just a fair movie in the sense of acting and storyline a lot is said for the ideal of returning to Africa by Robeson or the movie's producers.
What I'd like to emphasize here is that if one is a fan of Paul Robeson then the Prelinger Archives has scores of his songs available in mp3 format to pass on as a tribute to the quality of his singing presence as well as his character.
